Customer Testimonials

Read what our customers have to say about our training

The simulators are a safe and cost-effective training tool to get our equipment operators thinking about the upcoming winter season [and] give our new operators hands-on experience that they otherwise wouldn’t get until the snow is on the ground.”

Billie MillerVirginia DOT Safety Officer

Has the training been beneficial? With regard to operator safety, I can tell you that this winter DPW has logged about 34,000 hours in the snow program, probably 90 percent of it driver time, and we haven’t had a single reported accident since the training.

Tom HendersonWashington D.C. Solid Waste Administrator

I have not had one truck in the shop for transmission repair since 2006. We used to have a lot of transmission repairs from teaching people how to shift the gears out on the training runway. Now that students learn to shift on a simulator first, we don’t have them grinding gears and tearing up transmissions.

Travis DunlapNMDOT Training Academy Director

Our analysis indicated that those drivers in Salt Lake City with the lowest pre-training fuel efficiency benefited most from training, with over 7% improvement in fuel efficiency.

David StrayerUniversity of Utah

This training tool is receiving nothing but 5 stars for its benefits.
